Additive manufacturing (AM) company Renishaw has supplied Sandvik Additive Manufacturing with its multi-laser RenAM 500Q systems.

Renishaw says that this is one of the largest installations to date of the 3D printer.

The two companies also intend to collaborate on materials development, AM process technologies and post-processing.

‘Our collaboration will strengthen Sandvik's position during a period of rapid growth in the metal additive manufacturing industries,’ said Robin Weston, marketing manager of Renishaw's Additive Manufacturing Products Division.

Sandvik has also invested in a SEK200 million plant for manufacturing of titanium and nickel powders for AM.
